"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." --John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

Case Closed...

...for the umpteenth time.

Courtesy of the Washington Post, we have here a comparison of an authenticated document from George W. Bush's Air National Guard unit with one of the forged documents apparently given to CBS by Bush-hater and disgruntled former Army Guardsman Bill Burkett. Click on the image to see a larger version. One immediately sees the general difference in appearance between the memo on the left, with its uneven, hammer and ribbon-generated lines and the memo on the right, with its uniform, computer-generated, Times New Roman font. In addition, the signature on the forged memo is clearly not Killian's. Note particularly the difference in how the first letter of Killian's last name is written.
